Indigenous Initiatives

Indigenous Initiatives at the CTLT provides support for initiatives that improve classroom climate and campus environments across the university, support student success, and strengthen local capacity to approach cross-cultural dialogues effectively. We also initiate, advance, and maintain curriculum and academic resources to address the gaps and insufficiencies in knowledge around Indigenous topics. Our events and programming are open to everyone. For more info visit https://indigenousinitiatives.ctlt.ubc.ca 

The Classroom Climate Series is a set of professional development workshops offered once a month through the academic year and hosted by Indigenous Initiatives. The series provides a space for all members of the UBC teaching and learning community to share teaching and research practices, and to learn more about how to engage in conversations about place, power, and social location. Mark your calendars for upcoming sessions!
